New York: The Viking Press, 1947. 312 pp. Approximately 5 1/2 x 8". First edition book in later edition dust jacket. Dust jacket is very good with minor chips and wear but does not have the $2.75 price on flap and it references an enlarged edition, still very attractive however. Original orange cloth over boards, gilt title on front cover and spine, blind stamped pictorial bus on front cover, topstain faded, some minor wear to spine edges, otherwise in near fine condition. (Goldstone & Payne, A23a)

Originally thought to be one of Steinbeck's weaker novels, it was actually financially successful. The interesting thing about it is that no one single character in the book dominates. Rather, the viewpoint shifts from one character to another quite frequently, with access to the character's thoughts through an internal monologue. Adapted to film in 1957 to some success at the box office, it starred Jayne Mansfield, Joan Collins, Dan Dailey and Rick Jason.
